Great American Cleanup--Earth Day
Apr 22, 2009 9:00 am-2:00 pm
The City of Meridian's Planning Division, Keep America Beautiful Division and the Parks and Recreation Department are partnering for a special EARTH DAY CELEBRATION at Highland Park April 22, 2009.
CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS!
We need your help to keep America Beautiful. During hurricanes Ivan and Katrina we lost many trees in our community. No where is the impact seen so clearly as in Highland Park. Hundred year-old trees were lost or severely damaged. The Great American Cleanup continues through May 31st, but on this special day, Keep Meridian/Lauderdale County Beautiful is targeting Tree Planting and other beautification projects in Highland Park. We will provide lunch, gloves, and trash bags.
